Air France has signed a codeshare agreement with
Vietnam Airlines so that, starting 3 July 2010 its customers can
fly non stop from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to either Hanoi or Ho
Chi Minh City three times a week.
These flights will be operated by Vietnam
Airlines in Boeing 777-200, under the ‘AF’ Air France flight code.
They come in addition to flights Air France already operates via
Bangkok to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Air France will be offering
13 instead of 7 flights a week, including 6 between Paris and
Hanoi and 7 between Paris and Ho Chi Minh City.
Furthermore, within the terms of this new agreement, as early as
winter 2010, Air France will operate a non stop flight between Ho
Chi Minh City and Paris three times a week by Boeing 747-400 then
by Boeing 777-300ER. In November 2010, all flights to Vietnam will
be non stop.

domestic and 26 international destinations with a young fleet of
70 modern aircraft, serving more than 9 million passengers
annually to popular cities, including Beijing, Guangzhou,
Melbourne, Moscow, Paris, Seoul, Sydney and Tokyo.
